Ungureanu is looking for a team

Corina Vintan, former spokesperson of the Foreign Affairs Ministry back when the institution was headed by Mihai Razvan Ungureanu and current managing partner of the Links Associates consultancy company, has stated that she was asked to be part of the Premier’s team but that she will continue her entrepreneurial project instead. “I considered that at this moment I have a responsibility towards the entrepreneurial project I started 4 years ago, a project I worked hard to develop alongside ten of my colleagues, all accomplished professionals,” Corina Vintan told Mediafax. Previous to that statement, several news websites had informed that Corina Vintan will replace Ioana Muntean as government spokesperson. Official sources however stated for Mediafax on Friday that Dan Suciu, editor-in-chief of the Money Channel, and Ionut Stanimir, head of public communication within BCR, are Prime Minister Ungureanu’s options for the office of government spokesperson. The two have already had talks with the Prime Minister in this sense. According to political sources quoted by ‘Ziarul Financiar,’ Cornel Feruta, a career diplomat, will be announced as Premier Mihai Razvan Ungureanu’s new chief of office. Feruta was Ungureanu’s chief of office when he was Minister of Foreign Affairs in 2005-2007. Prior to that, Feruta worked as a journalist with a focus on foreign policy (1994-1997). Ion Mircea Plangu, former head of the Ministry of Defence’s Euro-Atlantic Integration and Defence Policy Department, was appointed state advisor within the Prime Minister’s personal team on Friday.
